The harbor freight near me is closing and having a huge sale. I wanted to pick up a few items including a Pittsburgh torque wrench but I am unsure what the maximum torque settings for the cbr overall.. What's the highest torque setting are for any part on the cbr? 250?

You need at least two, preferably 3


An inch pound wrench. 0-250 inlbs

Then a foot lb wrench maybe 5-50 lbs or similar

Then another foot lb wrench, 20-250 lbs


Torque wrenches are not reliable at their lowest setting. Use the smallest for the low torque bolts. The middle for the mid torque bolts. And the big one for the axles and clutch basket

what he said, don't use big wrench for small torque spec, i normally have 3, 1/4 small(5-20lbs), 3/8 medium(20-55lbs), and 1/2 for big numbers(55-120lbs) that's my personal setup that's where they work at its best
